- There is a loss of a current friend or acquaintance, thereby making room for a replacement.
- A birth or marriage involving someone who I’m not willing to sever a relationship with occurs, forcing me to accept a new individual.
- I meet a woman who is attractive enough that I would be foolish not to befriend her.
- Someone is extraordinary in some way, and a social relationship would add to my enjoyment of life.
Ultimately, I feel that I will improve my quality of life and the quality of my social relationships by actively limiting the number of people I associate with and stratifying my friendship hierarchy. And as always, bribes will effect the seeding of said friends. As a point of reference, I would like to note that acceptable bribes include but are not limited to: bacon, tickets to sporting events, cash or liquid assets, electronics, vacation packages, etc.
In conclusion, I didn't really plan this post out well and can't come up with a solid conclusion to wrap it all up, so I'm just going to stop and see how it turns out.
